What is BarCamp?

for the newbies...if you have attended BarCamp earlier then skip this part!

from barcamp.org:


BarCamp is an ad hoc un-conference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos, and interaction from attendees.

It is an interactive platform where all participants present, share, speak-up or at least be active listeners.

BarCamp on Wikipedia


BarCampMumbai|University is all this at a university level:

• Get in contact with students that share your interests.

• Get in touch with industry professionals.

• Network with people who in 3-5 years will be your colleagues.

While BarCampMU is mainly intended as a student event, professionals are more than welcome and in fact, invited to come and share their knowledge, help the student community.

BarCampMumbaiUniversityLevel (BarCampMumbaiUni4) is proposed to be a camp where we get together and discuss/rant/brain-storm/share opinions about about Web technologies & trends, Mobile Internet, Hacking, Blogging, VLogs ... everything about the Technology that interests us. As said before, "It's about geekery and having a focal point for great ideas."


Attendees are strongly encouraged to give a demo, a session, or help with one. You can help by taking notes on the wiki, blogging the event, helping to promote the event, or helping with logistics
